Show git branch in your bash prompt

Quite a convenient little snippet. Thought I would share it with all my dear readers and git lovers. (Thanks to the original author, whom I cannot remember right now. I’ll gladly post the link to the original source if someone reminds me) Add the snippet below to your .bash_profile (Don’t forget to “source” the file if need be). And now your bash will look something like: $ /usr/home/teknoid/some-git-project(master) Where, “(master)” is of course the git branch name you are currently working with. (Hey, picking of colors is up to you ;)) Enjoy. #showing git branches in bash prompt function parse_git_branch {   git branch –no-color 2> /dev/null | sed -e ‘/^[^*]/d’ -e ‘s/* \(.*\)/(\1)/’ } function proml {   local         RED="\[\033[0;31m\]"   local   LIGHT_RED="\[\033[1;31m\]"   local      YELLOW="\[\033[0;33m\]"   local LIGHT_GREEN="\[\033[1;32m\]"   local       WHITE="\[\033[1;37m\]"   local  LIGHT_GRAY="\[\033[0;37m\]"   local LIGHT_PURPLE="\[\033[1;34m\]"   case $TERM in     xterm*)     TITLEBAR=’\[\033]0;\u@\h:\w\007\]’     ;;     *)     TITLEBAR=""     ;;   esac PS1="${TITLEBAR}\ $LIGHT_PURPLE\w$YELLOW\$(parse_git_branch)\ \n$LIGHT_GRAY\$ " PS2=’> ‘ PS4=’+ ‘ } proml
